Horror Bags (Smith's Snacks)

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

I rememember these from the late 1970s. They were made by Smith's and came in Bats, Fangs, Ribs and Claws varieties. One was a very strong pickled onion flavour. Who else recalls these?

    Remember sherbert based sweets with Universal monster stickers in them? The packs were the size of 'Freddo' bars methinks!
